Climate Change

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions, and human-induced alterations of the natural world; these latter effects are currently causing global warming, and "climate change" is often used to describe human-specific impacts. The most important contributor to global warming is the increase in atmospheric CO2 levels due to human activity. Since CO2 is consumed by Plants  and  Trees  (known as carbon – sinks),  reversing deforestation  and implementing reforestation programmes may reduce levels in  the    atmosphere .  Under this Scheme this office is setting up to take up mechanism concerning to Climate Change in the context of Manipur state as well as to contribute a recovered and healthy environment in the global environmental scenario.
